WHILE DRIVING ON INTERSTATE I ATTEMPTED TO PASS A SLOWER VEHICLE. AFTER MOVING OVER AND ACCELERATING - THE TRUCK BUCKLED AND STALLED! I WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED BY AN 18 WHEELER AT 65 MPH! THIS WAS VERY CLOSE TO BEING A SERIOUS ACCIDENT INVOLVING MULTIPLE VEHICLES. PLEASE INVESTIGATE AND RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AS FORD DOESN'T SEEM TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT IT. NOT TO MENTION I TOOK IT IN FOR FORD TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM AND THEY REFUSED TO MAKE THE REPAIRS AS THE VEHICLE DID NOT SHOW A TROUBLE CODE. I LOOKED ONLINE AND THERE IS A TSB ON THIS VEHICLE BY FORD FOR THE REPAIR BUT FORD WON'T MAKE THE REPAIR. NOT TO MENTION SINCE THEN THE FUEL MILEAGE HAS DROPPED DRASTICALLY SINCE THE EVENT. THIS HAS HAPPENED THREE TIMES NOW. I AM VERY WORRIED ABOUT AN ACCIDENT WITH THIS ISSUE, NOT TO MENTION IT GOING OUT OF WARRANTY AND I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL. THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW AND THERE ARE LAWSUITS ALL OVER THE INTERNET FOR THIS SAME REASON. THIS IS OUR FAMILY VEHICLE AND IT LOSING POWER IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE DUE TO TRACTOR TRAILERS NOT BEING ABLE TO SLOW DOWN IN TIME WHEN THIS HAPPENS ON THE INTERSTATE. WHEN THE VEHICLE LOST POWER IT DROPS THE VEHICLE SPEED TO 40 MPH. NOT A SAFE SPEED FOR CONTESTED INTERSTATES. I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE IN APRIL AND SPENT 40,000 DOLLARS ON A TRUCK THAT'S VERY UNSAFE BUT NOT EVEN DEPENDABLE. THIS VEHICLE HAS A 3.5L ECOBOOST ENGINE WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AND IT ALSO SHUDDERS AT VARIOUS SPEEDS WITH A HARD CLUNKING SOUND DURING GEAR CHANGES. THANK YOU.
